“Belgian Abundance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Chez Georges is hard to get in, I was told and that was the reason I never tried it before. But an invitation by friends who are regulars there, opened the door, also for me. The cuisine proved to be very abundant, very Belgian and therefor slightly old-fashioned. However the food was excellent and the various sauces very tempting. My friends are real wine-lovers, so I gladly accepted their choices, although I boldly intervened when the Gicondas turned out to be too acrid and harsh to my taste. We were offered a Medoc in stead - well you can hardly go wrong with that! All in all a memorable evening.

“Go for the recommended menu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

I went for dinner in this restaurant with my family, we all had the recommended 4 course meal, it was absolutely fantastic, especially the two starters! It's a small, tight place, just like eating round someone's hourse, with plenty of character, and the staff were great. Service is continental, so plenty of time for conversation between courses.

Got in without a booking and chose the 5 course menu but only managed about three and a half! Portions huge. Food excellent. Staff friendly and very knowledgeable. Very enjoyable and unexpected evening

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We came here on our final night in Amsterdam for what we planned to be our family's main 'fine dinning' of the trip, and it didn't disappoint. The place was quite small and had a wonderful 'homely' and classic atmosphere. We ended up having a 4 course menu that was offered at the start of the evening with seafood, duck-3-ways, beef or venison and waffle. The menu was actually reasonably priced for two starters, a main and a dessert (about 38 euro's per person). It was our first time sampling Belgian cuisine, and it was so good we might have to try it again. The service was good but the restaurant was full (glad we booked, wouldn't have got in with a table for 5 if we hadn't) and sometimes it was hard to get the waiter's attention to get some more water. Definitely a good place to come for a special(er) dinner while in Amsterdam.

“A lovely choice in a perfect location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Charming, sweet little restaurant recommended by our concierge on our recent trip. I don't think we would have found this otherwise, as it doesn't have a terribly trendy feel, but rather a homey, comforting vibe. The tiny mezzanine was perfect for an early dinner, and the wait staff certainly knows the food and the pace. Portions are large- we stuck to the smallest of the tasting menus, yet still enjoyed an amuse, the duck 'three ways', a lovely filet and lamb, and dessert followed by coffee and chocolates. The wait team was most accommodating, subbing ingredients based upon our needs. Wine list very gently priced with a few interesting bottles. I agree with some earlier reviews- the weakest link was dessert, but perhaps seeing the kitchen there isn't really room for devoted pastry stations. This kitchen isn't producing new directions, but if comfort and consistency of classics at a great price is your dish, put this one high on your list.
